Marketing “Why The Hullabaloo”

This mindset will be the basis of The Hullabaloo’s future marketing program. In terms of The Hullabaloo’s staff as a whole, everyone needs to know not just what (the tasks) and/or how (the logistics), but also WHY. As a general rule, each segment of The Hullabaloo has operated separately with little perspective on the complete organization. This trend must change to push progress and inspire sweat and tears of effort from The Hullabaloo’s staff.


Introducing research notes

I’ve just now added three new pages to this blog to document the ongoing textual research for this Hullabaloo transition. I will continue to add notes to these pages as my research continues, but they will be the basis for critical decisions in the upcoming staff restructure and policy creation. They should also serve as a quick understanding of The Hullabaloo’s upcoming challenges/opportunities in a short-hand, easily accessible form.
